RedBuilt, one of the world’s leading suppliers of engineered wood products, is making a sizable addition to its U.S. footprint by naming Lam-Wood Systems Inc its exclusive distributor in Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Nebraska, Kansas and Western Iowa.
As RedBuilt’s exclusive distribution partner in those six markets for all light-commercial and multifamily applications, Lam-Wood will represent the manufacturer’s complete line of Red-I joists, open-web trusses, and RedLam laminated veneer lumber beams, headers and rim board. As part of the deal, one of RedBuilt’s most experienced and knowledgeable technical sales representatives, Bret Maynard, is signing on as the fourth member of the Lam-Wood sales team to ensure a seamless transition as they expand the engineered lumber leader’s presence in those markets.
Lam-Wood’s engineered lumber sales team will offer assistance with system selection, cost analysis, detailed shop drawings, timely delivery, and job-site follow-up. The Denver-based distributor, which also maintains offices in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Omaha, Neb., will be responsible for all the design and engineering for projects in the territory. The projects will be sold as Lam-Wood packages and the distributor will field technical calls during construction.
Randy Ruim, RedBuilt’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says the partnership with Lam-Wood is the first of several such relationships RedBuilt is seeking. “To complement our existing, in-house team of technical sales representatives,” he says, “we are expanding our geographical coverage by creating partnership arrangements with qualified potential representatives in select areas.” RedBuilt is currently actively looking for distributor representation in the following regions: Minnesota/Wisconsin; Northern Illinois; Southern Illinois/Missouri; upstate New York; New England; Maryland/Delaware/District of Columbia; the Carolinas; and Georgia. The company also has its sights set on Texas.
